Kenny Roy, Focal Press co-author of How to Cheat in Maya 2012 has given us a 23-minute holiday treat to share with you all. Find below one of his VideoMail videos which are videos in which he specifically addresses reader questions from his community forum off of www.kennyroy.com. In this videomail, Kenny demonstrates the way to rig and animate a sword coming out of a sheath, from a community question asked in the 11SecondClub.com forums. The concept of the rig is simple enough to understand and apply to other objects as well. Enjoy!
